If you love weather, live in the Ottumwa area and like the idea of helping keep your neighbors in south central Iowa safe during storm season, why not become a storm spotter?  This coming Thursday the National Weather Service will hold storm spotter training at 6 p.m. at Ottumwa High School. Tim Richmond, the county’s emergency management coordinator, said he’s hoping the session draws a good crowd, saying the more eyes on the weather we have the better.  Storm spotter training gives people the tools to recognize dangerous weather without having to rely on official warnings, Richmond said. He sees value in people “just being able to look at the horizon and say ‘Something’s up,” particularly when the NWS technology, good as it is, can’t always see everything.

Marion County Habitat for Humanity is once again on the move – on April 4th the organization will be moving a home currently at 910 Main St. in Pella to 510 S. 6th St. in Knoxville.  This will be the second time Habitat has moved a home in south central Iowa; the first took place in the fall of last year.  Bank Iowa donated the home, which was located on the future site of their new branch in Pella.  This home will become a part of the Habitat home ownership program, according to a Habitat news release. Habitat is currently accepting applications for this program, which ends at 5 p.m. on March 30.

The Greatest Attitude
15 My times are in your hands; deliver me from the hands of my enemies, from those who pursue me. Psalm 31:15
David now proclaims to God that his life is in His hands. This kind of attitude will keep us walking steady without responding negatively to all the evil in the world. This perspective will also keep our heart bent towards God no matter what the cost. David remembers God is in control of not only his life but the very cosmos he is living in.

Many of us struggle through life because of our attitude towards our troubling situations as we grant the circumstances of life permission to guide our attitude. For most, if all threats are gone in life our attitude can remain positive and fortunate. However, the minute we experience an unfortunate occurrence, our attitude can plummet. We have to make daily choices of how we will remain by saying “my times are in your hands.”

It is a matter of choice of how we will or will not be provoked by our troubles. David’s attitude rose above his life-threatening circumstance to realize God is in control. I wonder if he knew deep in his heart, that if the current situation took his life, the battle would be over. God will carry us through all battles of life but only if we allow His involvement. If we choose to dwell on the negative, is there any room for God’s participation in our life? What would happen if we agreed with David and said, “My times are in your hands.”
